Ok. I will put the character description here initially and then repost it where appropriate when the game starts. Revolverman, tell me if there's anything that might need modification and revision.
Name: Ortin Nikaldi
Age: 45 (Human average life is around 200)
Place of Birth: Earth
Ortin's parents were from the Mars colonies and they came to Earth just before Ortin was born. His father was sent there from the company he worked for. Mining and raw material enrichment were strictly prohibited on the farming oriented Earth as heavy industry activity damaged the fragile Earth ecosystem. Earthgrown crops were the most valued in all SolSys regions and the high demand had finally transformed Earth to a clean farming-only eden, with several corporations ending in a trade race among themselves to suply Earth with the heavy industrial products. Ortin's father company produced all kinds of irrigation and terraforming machinery and equipment. With a handful of deals and contracts, Stargarden created a separate division for Earth, the Earth Branch of Stargarden Co, of which Ortin's father was General Executive.
Growing up on Earth provided Ortin with a relatively uneventful youth, yet with plenty of time for his education. Unlike his father, he didn't have much interest in business. Curious in nature and known among kids for his grudges, he enjoyed finding the details of how things worked. On Earth he led a lifestyle which allowed him plenty of time for his education, hobbies and even his vices.
But his flowerbed life ended very abruptly when his father was murdered under mysterious circumstance. Nothing was found that could lead to a reason why and by who. Soon rumours spread that he had been involved in illegal trafics and low-profile contracts with Pluto. Pluto was well known to be a military settlement and it was very questionable that Earth Branch of Stargarden provided Pluto terraforming equipment which Stargarden HQ wouldn't provide. For Ortin the investigation that labeled his father a smuggler and a victim of illegal activity was rigged and manipulated. It ended too fast, it was forgotten far too eagerly.
To everyone's surprise he asked Stargarden permission to lead EBS after his father's death and in the end he was allowed to do so under the supervision of another Stargarden representative for 5 years. The resourceful young man soon realised that he was being watched rather than supervised and with the help of some friends, it wasn't long till he managed to find out that he was being spied upon. This triggered anger and a feeling of revenge in Ortin. He did all he could to secretly and privately determine who was behind all this and was convinced it had to do with his father's death, but the more he found out the more he came across classified information!
He orchestrated a quarrel with Stargarden's supervisor regarding EBS' way of management and during a loud and angered moment between the two of them they agreed to transfer its leadership to the supervisor with the aproval of Stargarden HQ for 5 years, a timespan during which Ortin would have no saying at all. This perfectly suited Ortin's plans who left EBS and returned to his relatives on Mars where he imediately enrolled with Mars Military Academy. He was among the best cadets and when he was presented with the choice he took intelligence specialising. During his final year he volunteered for the Infiltrator Dragoon training, members of which were kept classified. Officially he was sent to Saturn Military Testbed facility, but in reality he went to Neptune, at one of the many secret Infiltrator Hardening Outposts of the UEG.
When he returned to Earth he was seen as the man who had just finished a 5year holiday with the military. But the truth was that Ortin now had access to previously classified information to follow on his father's investigation. Easily he found out that Stargarden's supervisor for the Earth Branch was a UEG secret services data gatherer but with much lower clearance than himself as an Infiltrator Dragoon and the Earth Branch was more than a terraforming company. As a profesional he knew it was meaningless to ponder his father's murder any more.
He now is the respected General Executive of Earth Branch of Stargarden Terraforming Co. He is also "Hammershark" for those selected few who know about it... Earth, apart from being the peaceful eden of SolSys, is also the home of the newest, most secret UEG intelligence department which Hammershark steers towards one aim alone: Alien Contact.
